Both physical and IT security are necessary to guarantee the safety of industrial facilities; however, the two elements are operated separately in most organizations. To solve the security problems caused by this segregated operation of security systems, studies on the integration of physical and IT security are being conducted actively. To that end, event integration technology, which collects events from various items of security equipment to create security state alarm for analysis, is required. This paper suggests a structure that integrates physical and IT security events, with the aim of dealing with the differences and promoting interaction between physical and IT security systems, and describes the related interface and data exchange.
